im still debating whether if i should still keep my RCA/Columbia VHS or not??
I think this release will replace your old VHS. It will be cut, yes, but have the original music for sure. Anchor Bay is really good about listening to their fans and if the uncut footage was available, I'm sure they would have made every effort to reinsert it into the film. I have a feeling that the edited footage is lost for good. There's been no official word on it since the film's release.
yea i think so too. i really doubt this will be UNCUT, but there will always a shiver of hope in me!
I read someplace that Anchor Bay is releasing the theatrical version. As we know the actual theatrical version had a few more special effects shown than the cable and video versions.
It's a bit confusing, but this film is unique in that the theatrical version is really the uncut version.
Can you outline these special effects so I know what to look for? I've got the disc in my hands right now.
Oh, and the original trailer is a great inclusion. It's staged with footage shot specifically for the trailer and it's really well done. One of the best I've seen for slasher films.
Yeah!!! Okay - now, I'm going on memory from 1981 (but have been backed up by pics I've seen of these scenes)...MAY CONTAIN SPOILERZ!!!!
- Bernadette's throat slash is a tad longer than previous home vid versions (not as quick edit before the next shot).
- Etienne's motorcycle death - the shot is longer. he screams, blood is splashed across his face and the side of his face is damaged. Perhaps an okay edit because I didn't find it too realistic at the time.
- Greg's death - There was a little more shown here - the immediate aftermath (could be wrong as I've seen a pic and this may not have been in the theatrical version).
- David - this one I really remember clearly. This was edited way too much. Someone in the theater thought the shattered door fragements were parts of his skull and ran out of the theater, lol.
I'll find the internet pics (unless I saw them here????).
more to come.
At least that...
Chrysler a platform
I just checked all those deaths and a few more, and they are all the same between the two releases.
You have the disc in your hands AND you're typing at the same time. You can multi-task!!
How's the A/V though? Is the transfer an improvement over the old Columbia DVD? Will the review be up soon? (Sorry for all the questions)
I'm certainly more sold on this re-release than the House on Sorority Row one. Yay, only 1 double dip for me this coming month!
Thanks so much, Rhett. Guess they are lost forever. I'll get it anyways. Love that flick!
I saw this for preorder on Deep Discount with a little bonus:
LIMITED TIME EXCLUSIVE OFFER!
To help celebrate its release on DVD, for a limited time only, each copy of the film comes with six balloons featuring the unique instruments of death used by the killer! That's right, you get a cult classic with death balloons! Does it get any better than that?
oh that is freaking awesome!!! a great slasher with cool balloons!!! im gonna get that!
yea rhett,is there gonna be a review?
I want a birthday cake with the title logo font as seen in the trailer! I just preordered from Deepdiscount.com - sold on the balloons.
Just saw the death balloons deal and was gonna update it here, but I shouda known someone woulda have already seen that.
I'm so preordering right now. I love how you can see the weights :lol:
Ordering from Deep Discount NOW!
If the DVD doesn't come with a shish-ka-bob I'll feel like I'm getting ripped off.
I'm in for one. It's a no brainer. It's currently cheaper than Amazon's price, plus with free shipping (unlike Amazon's free shipping with over $25 purchase) & the balloons! Thanks for the heads up, Suicide!
Since this new release will likely cause it to get lost into the annals of disco oblivion... does anyone know where the song "Out of the Blue" came from on the previous DVD release? I can't place the singer, nor was it credited anywhere on the original disc that I can recall.
Perhaps an unreleased song from the disco era that Sony owned the rights to?
